Suns' Mikal Bridges: Fails to score Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges recorded zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and one rebound in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 106-86 win over the Heat.

Tuesday's performance was the worst of Bridges' season, though it was the second time this month he's failed to score while playing 20 minutes. He's more of a defensive presence for the Suns, and his offense can be inconsistent. In addition to his two zero-point performances this month, he also has two 20-point performances. Overall in April, he's averaged 11.1 points on 50.0 percent shooting, 2.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 combined blocks-plus-steals.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Goes for 20 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges had 20 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, an assist and a block across 36 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Clippers.

Bridges was coming off a scoreless outing in his previous appearance, but he managed to bounce back quickly and he's now scored 15-plus points in three of his last four contests. He also made multiple treys for the third time over his last four-game stretch.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Limited production, foul trouble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges posted zero points (0-1 FG), three rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 117-113 overtime win against the Jazz.

Bridges picked up five fouls in the game, limiting his workload, but he wasn't productive even relative to the 20 minutes he received. Wednesday's performance marked the first time all season Bridges has failed to score, and it was only the sixth time he's failed to post an assist. The effort will almost certainly end up being an outlier for Bridges -- one of the best role players in the NBA for the surprisingly-great Suns. In the 10 games leading up to Wednesday, he averaged 12.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 steals in 32.4 minutes.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Scores 20 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with three assists, two steals, one rebound and one block across 33 minutes in a 133-130 victory over the Rockets on Monday.

Thanks to some efficient shooting, Bridges scored 20-plus points for the seventh time this season. The forward has recorded at least a steal or a block in each of his last 15 games, giving him plenty of value even on nights when his contributions on the offensive end are lighter.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Steals career-high six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges posted 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3pt) eight rebounds, six steals, four assists and one block in 42 minutes during Sunday's win over the Hornets.

The 24-year-old had just been averaging 0.8 steals over his past four games before Sunday's six-steal explosion. Bridges is averaging a career-low 0.9 steals through 45 games this season after averaging 1.6 and 1.4 in his rookie and sophomore season, respectively. Bridges will look to build on his impressive defensive performance Tuesday at home against the Hawks.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Contributes 11 points, seven boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges dropped 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Friday's win over the Raptors.

This was a bounce-back effort for Bridges, who posted just five points in Wednesday's loss to the Magic. For the month of March, Bridges is enjoying moderate success with averages of 12.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 0.9 steals per game.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Officially available Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges (heel) is available for Friday's game against the Raptors, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

Bridges was probable for Friday's matchup due to right heel soreness, but coach Monty Williams said that Bridges is fine. Bridges has averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 33.4 minutes per game across his past five appearances.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Probable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges (heel) is listed as probable for Friday's game against Toronto.

Bridges is dealing with soreness in his right heel, which is apparently a new injury. The 24-year-old wing has been extremely reliable for Phoenix so far this season, having not missed a single game. It looks like that streak will likely continue Friday despite the heel issue.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Struggles in narrow loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges amassed just five points (2-9 FG, 1-7 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 112-111 loss to the Magic.

Bridges hit rock bottom in the loss, delivering arguably his worst performance of the season. Given the preseason hype and where he was being drafted, it has to be said that he been somewhat of a disappointment. That said, he is firmly locked in as a must-roster player and his defensive contributions are certainly due for a positive regression at some point.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Solid performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges scored 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in a 110-100 victory over Miami on Tuesday.

Bridges was able to score in double figures for the sixth time in seven games since returning from the All-Star break. The forward has shot the ball well of late, making 57.6 percent of his attempts from the field and 44.4 percent from behind the arc over that same stretch. Bridges' strong defense also continued, and he has now recorded a steal in eight consecutive games.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Scores 17 in win

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Accurate shooting in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges produced 17 points (6-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Thursday's 123-119 loss to the Timberwolves.

Bridges turned in a well-rounded performance and collected a season-high eight assists in the loss. He's also had great success from beyond the arc over the past three games. He's converted nine three-pointers over that span at a rate of 56.3 percent.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Posts diverse stat line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges tallied 18 points (8-10 FG, 102 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Thursday's 127-121 win over the Trail Blazers.

Bridges usually turns in a good number when his shot volume is this high, so creating more offense opportunities is essential for Bridges to realize his value in the starting five. While Bridges is an excellent defender, there are many mouths to feed on the Suns' roster, and the forward doesn't get enough looks to produce consistently high numbers. He still possesses a reliable floor and remains a relevant fantasy target.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Looks good in victory Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges finished with 19 points (6-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and five assists over 36 minutes in a 114-104 win over the Lakers on Tuesday.

Bridges trailed only Dario Saric for high-scoring honors on the team, posting his fifth game of double-digit points in his past six contests. He also tied his season high with five dimes and contributed a team-high six boards. Bridges has been ultra efficient over his past three games, averaging 14.0 points while making a superb 71.4 percent of his field-goal attempts.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Efficient in blowout victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges contributed 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and two blocks in the Suns' 132-100 victory Monday over the Trail Blazers.

After leading by only nine in the first half, the Suns came out firing in the second, extending their lead up to 29, essentially putting the game out of reach. For that reason, Bridges played only 24 minutes but still impacted the game due to his efficient shooting and playmaking on offense. The third-year forward is averaging 13.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in his last 10 games.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Sharp from field in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges had 19 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block across 28 minutes in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies.

Bridges missed just one shot from the field all game long and bounced back after scoring 10 or fewer points in three of his previous four contests. Bridges has struggled in terms of consistency of late but has been trending in the right direction it seems -- he has scored 15 or more points in five of his last eight contests.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Bounces back in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges dropped 21 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one assist over 31 minutes in the Suns' 109-90 victory over the Magic on Sunday.

Bridges' shot has been falling lately, as he's made over 50 percent from the field four times in five games while topping the 20-point mark twice. Though his performances recently have been pleasant, Bridges has been wildly inconsistent for the month of February. In eight games, he's gone under 10 points three times, shot 40 percent or less four times and has only grabbed five or more rebounds thrice.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Puts up 22 points in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges collected 22 points (8-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 36 minutes in Monday's 119-113 win over the Cavaliers.

After spending time in the backcourt during Devin Booker's absence, Bridges is back where he belongs at the wing. His averages took a hit after subpar games against Detroit and New Orleans, but he appears to be back on track and will continue to see around 35 minutes per game.

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Flirts with double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suns' Mikal Bridges: Efficient shooting night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridges tallied 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and an assist across 33 minutes in Saturday's 111-105 win over the Mavericks.

Since moving into the backcourt, Bridges' usual rebound totals have taken a hit, but he's averaging double-digit shot attempts in Devon Booker's absence. Regardless of his position in the starting lineup, his steady performances warrant consideration in all fantasy formats.
